Inspired by the need for nutritious and tasty foods to satisfy those mid-day hunger pangs, sisters and city-based entrepreneurs Anindita and Suhasini came up with the idea of Yogabars.
I love that they have macronutrients such as healthy fats and proteins as well as vitamins and minerals. Additionally, the bars are made using honey, so they don't taste like you're eating a candy bar. This feels chunky, and healthy with completely natural flavours with no preservatives or artificial flavours. The not-so-secret ingredients include almonds, oats, sesame seeds, flax seeds, chia seeds, dates, whole grains, dried fruits and superfoods such as wheatgrass and cacao, all nicely blended to give a nutrient-loaded 140-170 Kcals in a single bar. And they're small so can easily fit into your bag, or even pocket! I once smuggled it into a cinema hall!
I've tried four of the Yoga Bars – Vanilla Almond Crunch, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chunk Nut and Cashew Orange – and lived to tell the tale. The Cashew Orange was an instant favourite because of its zesty, citrusy flavours while the Chocolate Chunk delivered what it promised. A rich taste of chocolatey goodness. The Peanut Butter version also made it to our list of favourites because of it sticking to the flavour it promised on the packaging while the Vanilla Almond Crunch was a pretty standard affair with nothing really spectacular to write home about. The Nuts and Seeds, The Cardamom and Coconut and Chocolate Bar.
